Years after the events of Up All Night, Nick Torres remains haunted by the ghosts of his past. Seeking help -- or at least solace -- he reaches out to licensed therapist Patricia Rathburn for guidance.
Much to her dismay, Nick's presence proves a harrowing reminder of Patricia's own inner demons... but can she see past her clouded judgement to help this troubled young man?
Unfortunately, therapy can't fix everything.
WARNING: This game incorporates mature themes including physical and psychological trauma, abusive relationships, suicidal ideation, and visual and written depictions of gore.
While Rumination may be enjoyed on its own, we encourage players to check out Up All Night -- a serene murder mystery/horror visual novel -- to which Rumination is a direct spin-off.
Rumination can be considered an interlude between Up All Night and its future sequel, currently in production.
